MOUNT MOURNE, N.C. -- Divers and rescue teams found the body of a missing boater on Lake Norman Monday night. They are still looking for another man who disappeared on a different part of the lake over the Labor Day weekend.

Crews searched all day Sunday for a 32-year-old man last see when he jumped off a boat Saturday afternoon in the northern part of the lake. Around 7:40 p.m. Monday, rescue crews found his body near the D-11 channel marker.

Authorities said the search was hampered because they got conflicted information from other people on the boat. Divers searched until the sun went down Sunday, then suspended their efforts.

Another boater was reported missing near Cornelius around 10:30 p.m. Sunday. Witnesses said he also jumped off a boat, went under the water and wasn't seen again. Divers continued their search for him Monday.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.
